Since taking over as SKA head coach, Oleg Znarok now has 100 victories. Only Boris Mikhaylov (234), Nikolai Puchkov (193) and Barry Smith (114) have more.
Nevertheless, it only took Oleg Znarok 121 matches to reach this landmark, a club record. 84 of the wins have come in regulation, with the remaining 16 in overtime or a penalty shootout.

The last time when SKA won 1:0 in the KHL regular season was in December 2012.
In six 1:0 victories, defensemen have only scored the winning goal on two occasions (Dmitry Kalinin and Patrik Hersley).
Anton Belov made his 650th Russian championship appearance. So far, he has 173 (49+124) points.
